The MetGala 2012

On the 7th of May one of the most important yearly events went down in New York City.
Im talking about the The MET Gala 2012 wich was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Temple of Dendur.
As celebration of the new exhibition of ''Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.''
-hosted by Carey Mulligan, Anna Wintour, and Miuccia Prada herself, as well as honorary cochair Jeff Bezos.
As usual celebrities from around the globe came to the Costume Institute Gala, wich was once again hosted by Vogue. You could call it the most important '' fashion event of the year!
Doutzen Kroes, Marc Jacobs, Beyoncé, Giselle Bunchen and Pharell Williams are few names of all the celebrities who joined the event.
All looking marvelous.

Head-to-toe covered in prints
First designers came with lovely printed pants which has taken over the streets.
But now they've added matching garments to create suits to their print obsessions.
Head-to-toe print might seem like a scary and daring trend at first thought.
But if you match it with a pair of coloured heels or go for an laid-back look by matching it with a white tee I'm sure it'll look fab.

Meet Dutch Model Stefan Scheenstra

Meet Stefan Bastiaan Scheenstra, a model hailing from The Netherlands.
On the first edition of the Dutch modeling show ''The Face'' Stefan came second.
But became the first of all the men joining.
Signed at different agencies worldwide his mother agency is Tony Jones Amsterdam.
Stefan is working his way up in the modeling business.
He didn't actually plan on becoming a model.
He wanted to become a professional tennis player but he quit for several mental reasons.

Stefan has now walked shows for both Versace and Guess by Marciano
Versace has booked him exclusively which means that he could only walk shows for Versace in the Milaan Fashion Week because they think he's special.
I became a fan of this Dutch stud!
And I´m not a big fan of the most male models..
If you want to stay up-to-date with Stefan, follow his blog or follow him on twitter!
Continue reading to see my favorite pictures of him!
